Sweet Country Corn was a brand built by Bill Cilia (Nirvana Surfboards) while he was working at Shane Surfboards in the 70's. Bill can't remember how many boards he built under this label. But he does remember how he came up with the name. The story goes that Bill was sitting down with Shane one day at the factory and they were discussing what name he could use on these new boards. At the table was a can of Sweet Corn.
This board had a basic restoration. Dings repaired, gloss and polish.

This board was shaped by Russell Head. Late 70's early 80's. Single timber centre stringer with two resin glue up stringers added. As seen in the original photo the deck is in good condition. With only two areas that needed covering. The ding on the left rail and the area where the old legrope plug had been removed.
Unfortunately the bottom was not in the same condition as the deck. Plenty of dings, and a number of stressies needed repairing. Once the dings were sanded, the bottom was sanded and filler coated. The whole board was fine sanded and painted. Red pin lines and lightning bolt added. Clear coated, wet and dry sanded and polished.
